Challenge Cards

Hello All!

Hope your Tuesday is off to a good start. I've got a busy day of house cleaning and errands before some guests arrive, but I did find time to squeeze in a few minutes for some stamping, a girl needs a little motivation, right! :)

I have two cards to share today. I made this first one for the Magnolia vs. Stampavie challenge and Papertake Weekly challenge. Magnolia was to use a sketch and Papertake was a Pastel Color challenge. I used a Sarah Kay image I received from Erin. Colored her with Copics and then used some Porcelain papers from BasicGrey.

This next card is for the challenges at A Spoon Full of Sugar and Sketch and Stash. Spoon Full of Sugar's challenge was to use dies and punches on your card and then Sketch and Stash had a new sketch to use and of course to use some embellishments from your stash. So for this card I used some Marrekech papers from BasicGrey along with this cute Tilda stamp I received in a swap. She's been colored with Copics. The stash here are some Prima flowers and some metal hardware and rhinestone brads. I used my Square and Scalloped Square Nesties for the dies to fit the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge.

Thanks for stopping on by today. Have a great day. I probably won't be doing too much in the way of stamping or blog hopping over the next few days as we'll be having some family visiting. I will be posting a card tomorrow though for the Whimsy Stamps sponsored Truly Scrumptious challenge! Off to work on that one now!

Happy Stamping! :)

WOW Denise! These are gorgeous. I love the first one (must be the pink) and the Tilda is stunning!

I just noticed that the frog blinks his eyes on your banner! TeeHee! Now if you can get "snappy" to bob his head that would be something! Ya think?

Enjoy your company!
